SFTP Help

I need to set up SFTP on a VMS Server. I need to copy the file to a window server.

I need to know how to create authentication between VMS Server and Windows server to allow an SFTP connection without using a password. I'm not fully conversant so if someone could give some detail on how to implement that would be great. I have SSH Client/server on the VMS Server. I need to know what I need to generate to gain authentication between the servers and which directory to copy the authentication on the windows server.

Thanks for any help,

Paul

Paul,

consider to google for 'sftp volker site:hp.com'

There have been some discussions about setting up SFTP on OpenVMS in this ITRC forum recently.

Re: SFTP Help

Thanks,

I have been reading the older threads. I have ben editing the ssh2_config and copying the pub files etc from client to server.
However I still get the following error when testing. Do I need to stop/start ssh on both servers to read in the ssh2_config?
TEST02> sftp "-B" "tmp.ftp" sysm01
warning: Authentication failed.
Disconnected; no more authentication methods available (No further authenticatio
n methods available.).

FATAL: ssh2 client failed to authenticate. (or you have too old ssh2 installed,

What are you changing in the config file(s)?
(And why?)

Many other SSH implementations use different
key file formats. Copying key files without
adjusting/converting is a common way to get
into trouble.

I'd start with a simple "ssh". When that
fails, add a "-v" option to see more
precisely what fails. When SSH works, I'd
start playing with SFTP.
